I've already got plans to join a group buy with some friends of something black, something semi-auto.

It's time to hit the rainy day fund.

Any FTF sellers please PM me with your offerings.

Most likely, nothing. If my deposit goes through tomorrow, then I'll pay off the GP-100 I have on layaway and start something else, depending on what's available. Otherwise, it'll be on Thursday. There's a few I have my peepers on, from big hunting handguns to small carry size guns. I'll pick one, and that + the Garand I have on layaway will be it for me for some time.

If you wait until tomorrow to buy it might be too late.... if you have the time order it up online tonight to get the pre election price.

1 (possibly 2) Stripped Lower receiver for an AR-15
4 or more 30 round AR magazines.

If I had the money I'd also get 10,000 rounds of 7.62X39.

I was thinking about waiting till christmas time to get 1,000 rounds of 7.62x39, maybe I will buy is sooner. But then I would have to put off buying that scope I wanted.

Well you can shoot without a scope...its a lot harder to shoot without ammo...even if you can see the target better

Well I was going to buy a new Colt Delta Elite with some of my tax refunds but I'm not so sure I'll be getting them now.

True, I will probably end up getting both by the end of the year just in a different order now.

Actually I won't be buying anything I don't need till we get another president. Supporting a socialist economy just makes it stronger and more able to work against you.

Well, I bought an AR upper and some AR accessories today, but not because of the election; it just happened that my paycheck came through today :p

I will be buying some AK mags ASAP before they go up in price, as I imagine they will. I've been putting it off for a while, so I might as well. I'm really glad that I bought that 1000 rounds of x39 last month, before it got too crazy. Yikes.

I'm waiting 6 months to a year when the market is saturated and prices start to fall.Or skyrocket, because supply will be permanently frozen by the new regime.

I'm planning on dipping into my funds to get a Spike's Tactical .22LR Upper, and maybe a small-ish conceal piece--though I might make that a Browning Hi-power, as I've always wanted one and now the "hi cap" nonsense will make 'em and their mags "rare"

"i'm buying 17,000 ar-15s and 300,000 mags. at least...."

Lightweight.
:D

I just ordered 1000 more rounds of SS197 and 2 more 50 round mags for the PS90 tonight. That sets me at just at 3500 rounds and 8 mags. That should last me for a while. I guess I will pick up some more ammo just before he swears in next year as I expect a big buying rush to effect supplies and prices.

Also picked up 1 more mag for the Beretta 92. I have 7 x 20 rounds for the Five seveN so that should work. All my other handguns are 1911s and will not really be effect by possible magazine bans and I have plenty of .45ACP on hand. All my other long guns are either WWII rifles or shotguns so they should not be effected.

In all honesty I think anything gun control is pretty low on his list of priorities, if anything happens if will be long into this term or into the next IMO.

as it happens, a month ago i put a deposit down on a used beretta 302a. my first shotgun. tomorrow is payday and i am going to go pick it up.

Obama's a politician, and he KNOWS what his priorities are.

And I'm going to tell you his #1 priority. His number 1 priority when he takes office is figuring out how the hell he's going to keep his fickle followers from turning on him when he's unable to fix everything in 6 months.

I've spent a lot of time in Taiwan, and that island's political-economic situation mirrors the US exactly. They had their equivalent of Bush (President Chen Shui Bian) for the last 8 years. They elected the opposition party candidate afterwards.

Just /6 months/ after he took office, his own supporters were protest marching on the Presidential Estate because of how he failed to fix the economy.

I can DEFINITELY see the same fate befalling Obama early in his presidency.





And I purchased a pair of AKs, one Chinese and one Romanian, and got a bunch of Bulgarian waffle mags, and a Romanian 75rd Drum. Already have an ammo stockpile in major calibers, so I think I'm good there.

November 5, 2008, 04:48 AM
I'll be purchasing an underfolder stock AK, Romanian I think, and a 75 round drum tomorrow. If price gouging is in effect more than $50 for the rifle, for example, I'll probably wait and hope things will cool off, or just settle for only having a Chinese MAK-90 as my AK for many years. I'll be getting some bulk 7.62x39 in short order, and then over a period of time buy many more spare mags and ammo than I would have otherwise. Oh yeah, one thing I'll be blowing my precious cash on tomorrow will definately be rum!

Amen

Reloading equipment, which was on the lineup anyway.

Making a trip to the little-known FFL down the road to buy some Wolf ammo, ask if he sells powder and such, check if his smith will take a look at the malfunctioning trigger on my S&W, and wish him luck.

Nothing unusual.

well, i wanted an ar15 type rifle. but since the obama got elected, i can see that option is going to go down the toilet fast. i dont have the money to buy one right now, and by the time i do they will be illegal. no sense in buying a high capacity mag for one either. man, i am so freaking angry/ upset/ mad / disapointed. it isnt even just funny. did he ever produce a real document that shows he is really a natural born United States citizen???

rather than spending more $$$ on ammo, mags, and a new gun, I'm going to increase my support to the NRA and other gun right groups.

Now THAT makes more sense than anything!

sernv99
November 5, 2008, 07:28 AM
....also, contributing to the NRA and like minded groups is more feasible for those that live in states where there is already gun restrictions (CA, NY, MA, etc.). In addition, not everyone on here has their own house to do reloading so buying thousands of rounds for the sake of having brass to reload (in case of a clamp down on ammo or whatever), doesn't do us non-homeowners any good...

just some thoughts....

I hate to buy anything before selling something else, so I'm kind of stuck.

a part of me thinks this panic buying is kind of silly.

i'm sure the manufacturers are having a ball right now keeping up with demand.

the other part of me ordered 10 stripped AR lower receivers and another 200 p-mags a few weeks ago in anticipation of a BHO victory.

another part of my brain made me send in several checks to NRA SATF and SAF recently.

my poor brain is being torn in so many directions right now.

the net result, however, is that I am broke. :cuss:

Thank you for your order. Due to the political situation we have seen an extreme increase in orders. We are doing our best to ship out orders A.S.A.P. As it stands now your order will be shipped Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. Thank you for your patience.:mad:

Ah, fear mongering to produce higher sales and higher prices. The capitalist in me is swelling with pride. The gun owner, not so much.

As far as what I'm going to get, I have a large order to place with Buffalo Bore, but that was going to happen regardless of the election.
